Greater security in industry thanks to digital locking technology!
Security requirements are constantly increasing in industry – be it the automotive sector, mechanical and plant engineering, metal construction, the chemical industry, the pharmaceutical industry or the food and beverage sector. There is also noticeable cost pressure in industry, which presents a growing challenge for many companies.
These concerns are also reflected in access control as no compromises should be made when it comes to security.
Digital access control helps in this respect as a digital locking system such as System 3060 guarantees maximum security and the capacity to give a flexible response to changes and events. And all this with low running costs.
We will show you how smart access control can help with lost keys.
The all-inclusive solution for your industrial enterprise: System 3060
- Gradual digitisation, integration of production and technology
- Respond to growing security requirements with the right locking solution
- Flexible handling of different requirements with different access rights
As you can see, a great deal of activity needs to be managed here with other aspects like flexible working time models, external service staff such as cleaning staff and much more also requiring attention. It's not only doors which require authorisations. Other access points are also relevant – from the company entrance barrier through to access to sensitive data. This creates highly complex activity that needs to be managed in terms of both space and time. Manual locking systems reach their limits in this respect.
System 3060 – meets all requirements for modern access control
- Automated documentation of access control
- Increased hygiene standards thanks to contactless technology
- Automated processes and event logging for perfect quality assurance
- Mapping of restricted access areas, such as IT rooms, research departments, and similar, ensures active security
- Knowing the system exists serves as a deterrent, thus adding passive security
- Low costs are ensured thanks to sustainability, durability, minimal power consumption, upward and downward compatibility, connection to third-party systems and more

These industrial enterprises already rely on SimonsVoss System 3060:
The Mercedes Benz Sales Centre in Munich is designed as a multi-functional building, offering a world of experience for all car fans. Its access management meets optimum quality and technology standards with SimonsVoss System 3060.
Customised for 80 user groups.
Mercedes Benz Munich has divided access authorisations into 80 user groups. Thanks to System 3060, these groups receive customised access rights to the many different areas in the building. Instead of carrying several keys, users have a single transponder, specially programmed for their individual usage requirements. This ensures that system administrators have a clear view of the whole system and can respond quickly and conveniently to any changes from a central control point.
SmartRelay 3063 also allows barriers, lifts and automatic vehicle doors to be integrated into the system. A courier, for example, can thus drive up to the gate or into the underground garage, operate the lift, access the stairway and enter the post room using just one single transponder. A total of 385 locking cylinders and 54 SmartRelays were installed within just under two months.
innovations to benefit health.
Roche Diagnostics employs a workforce of some 7,000 in Mannheim, Germany. Looking after the locking systems in an area comprising 225 buildings is a multifaceted job for those in charge. A two-man team uses System 3060 to manage and coordinate access through interior and exterior doors, gates and other entrances for co-workers, external employees and visitors alike.
Inexpensive and secure.
Access management needs to be inexpensive, yet secure for a company of this size. System 3060 meets these requirements at Roche, where SmartRelays are fitted to heavily used connecting doors. Operated with a transponder, these freely programmable control units function in the same way as an electric strike. The SmartRelay can also incorporate lifts, gates and barriers into the 3060 Locking System. All such elements can then be operated with a same single transponder. A special variant even arms the alarm systems in the Roche plant.
In addition to transponders, Roche also uses PIN Code Keypad 3068. A four- to eight-digit code is entered into the keypad to open doors. This is ideal for incorporating the many external employees who only work at the plant for a certain period of time. Instead of handing out countless transponders to temporary staf, management simply changes the code once a month.
Beck & Co brewery:
Bremen master brewer relies on SimonsVoss.
The Beck brewery in Bremen is Germany's largest export brewery. Their recipe for success consists in perfect logistics, elaborate brewing techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. Nothing is left to chance when it comes to security and access management either since they rely on System 3060 from SimonsVoss.
Three cheers for security
More than 12 million litres of beer routinely await handling on a storage space measuring some 13,000 square metres at Beck. The greatest challenge for management is security in all exterior doors since around 250 trucks and 90 containers leave the brewery on a daily basis. The brewery comprises ten buildings, where a total of 1,500 employees go about their daily business. Versatile, reliable and weatherproof, System 3060 is an optimum, easy-to-use solution for Beck. Administrators can control which users have access authorisation to specific doors centrally on a PC. One special feature is the system connection to the existing intruder alarm system. The SimonsVoss VdS-certified block lock function is designed specifically for this purpose. Consisting of an activation unit and several deactivation units, it prevents people from inadvertently entering areas where the alarm system is enabled, thus avoiding tiresome, expensive false alarms.
The future of access control – System 3060 in industry
Are you looking for a system where you no longer need to worry about lost keys and huge bunches of keys? Would you like a system that allows your employees to access their work areas with a single locking medium, but which can also open the warehouse and recreation areas while cleaning staff are only permitted to enter your premises at certain times?
A digital locking system such as the SimonsVoss System 3060 can provide a convenient solution to what mechanical locking systems are barely able to offer.
Such a system offers much more than merely opening and closing doors. A smart access system gives you an intelligent, flexible approach to handling gates, barriers, floor access authorisations in lifts and even approval to start up vehicles such as forklifts.
The all-inclusive solution for a wide variety of industries.
Access control is always a complex, time-consuming concern, especially in industrial enterprises. The larger a company is, the more complicated things become. If a key is lost, replacements are expensive, if you depend on a mechanical locking system, that is. With a digital access control system, however, locking media can be easily blocked and security immediately restored in the event of key loss. There is no need to replace keys and locks and no need to interrupt day-to-day activity. Digital locking technology is an investment from which industrial enterprises can only benefit in other respects too.
There is a great deal of coming and going in the automotive sector and not only in the literal sense of the word. Automotive companies contain a wide variety of departments – from planning and design through to production and quality assurance. In each department, locking authorisations must be optimally matched to duties to ensure that planning documents, for example, are subject to maximum confidentiality while access to the right parts is guaranteed in production at all times. The use of digital locking technology is recommended so that a quick response can be made in cases of doubt.
Metal construction and mechanical and plant engineering
Access control requirements are just as complex as machines and systems. There is a need to ensure that every employee has access to the rooms they require at all times and can work there as specified in their authorisations. Digital access control can be used to regulate additional authorisations in this respect: for example, even machines can be equipped so that only those who have a suitable digital access medium can start them up. This is just one of the many advantages of using a SimonsVoss locking system.
When we think of the chemistry industry, explosive materials and well-secured research laboratories immediately come to mind. It is thus clearly evident that the chemical industry is one sector where a greater need for security is essential. Access to research materials should thus be restricted to a limited group of users and access control must ensure that locking media can be blocked immediately in the event of loss. In security sections such as those found in the chemical industry, in addition to issuing access authorisations, it is also important that accesses can be logged and are immediately recorded if unauthorised access attempts are made . A system like System 3060 makes all this possible.
Compliance with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) guidelines is an important pillar in pharmaceutical quality management. Digital locking technology can make an important contribution to complying with these guidelines by ensuring that only appropriately trained personnel have access to relevant areas. Certain equipment needs to be unlocked first before use and only a few, rigorously selected persons can enter restricted access areas. A flexible response can be given in the event of anomalies with locking devices operated via software if necessary.
Food and luxury food industry
The food and beverage industry is another very sensitive sector where locking technology plays an important role. What damage will be caused if a spoilt batch of perishable food reaches the market, for example? Among other things, monitoring systems must ensure that cold stores are always closed and that the strict HACCP guidelines are met in production. In addition to allocating access authorisations exactly as required, a digital access control system can also help by reporting when a door is open for an unusually long time. This is a very important consideration for cold stores, for example.
